Today the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority awarded Valley Water $57 million dollars over five years from Measure AA, the San Francisco Bay Clean Water, Pollution Prevention and Habitat Restoration Measure. The money will help complete construction of the first phase of the South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Project (Shoreline Project).
The Shoreline Project will safeguard hundreds of homes, schools, critical infrastructure and businesses along Santa Clara County’s shoreline from the risk of tidal flooding. It will also create an opportunity to restore vital ecosystems for a variety of threatened and endangered species and enhance recreational opportunities.
Today’s action by the Restoration Authority shows their commitment to funding innovative projects that will help protect our communities from sea level rise, as a result of climate change.
